Thailand is real jungles with exotic plants, clear rivers, azure sea, coral islands, spreading palms and snow-white beaches.
A year in this area is for the sake of convenience divided into three seasons:
hot – from March till May, average temperature - 29-38 °С.
the season of monsoon rains - June-October, though with a lot of sunny days, the average temperature being from 26 °C to 32 °C.
In Pattani, on the islands of Phuket and Samui pouring rains are of short duration and fall usually in the second half of the day or at night lasting from 15 minutes to 2-3 hours.
dry season - November–February with the average temperature from 19 to 30 degrees.
Monetary unit - baht (1 THB = 0,03 USD).
Time in Thailand is ahead of our time by 5 hours in winter and by 4 hours in summer.
The best period for visiting Thailand – between November and February, when it does not rain much and it is not very hot.
The capital of the state – Bangkok, with the population consisting mainly of the Thais (75%), Chinese (11%), Malays (4%), and Khmers, Laotians, Indians and Persians.
Official language is Thai though English and Chinese are also widely spread.
About 95% of population professes Buddhism, 4% – Islam, the rest – Christianity and Hinduism. By the way, the chronology in Thailand is kept since the day of Buddha’s death, so now it is 2550 according to Thai calendar.
Exotic sight for newcomers – markets on the water
After arriving to Bangkok people are first of all astonished by its grandeur and size. Millions of lights shining in the streets, the skyscrapers roofs flying in the sky, bright broaches of palaces, and numerous city temples and compound multilevel motorways... This is unspeakable! The King’s palace and the Emerald Buddha Temple produce a great impression, just as a splendid Aquarium in the Siam Paragon trading centre, river market, snake farm...
One of the most fashionable and famous Thai massage salons-SPA - "Dulaya SPA" - is situated in the chic "Davis Hotel" in Bangkok.
Ancient or Thai massage is an extraordinary method of balancing various types of body energy; it originates from the times of Buddha. Traditionally, the Thai massage is practiced in Buddhist temples by monks specializing in this art of "manual manipulation". In today’s Thailand the practice of massage is not limited to the temples walls any more. Today the Thai massage is practiced all over the territory of Thailand, in massage schools, in old hospitals where they use the methods of traditional medicine.
Even those who have a sceptical attitude to Thai massage usually change their minds after experiencing its miraculous effect.
